Raymond Ford's post

MAJOR NEWS COMING OUT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA The B.C. government and BC Parks Foundation have teamed up to provide $300 million to protect old-growth forests across the province — a move environmental groups have described as a critical step in turning local economies away from unsustainable logging.
Praise for the new green funding came from all sides. Ken Wu, executive director of Endangered Ecosystems Alliance, said the new fund will put First Nations “in the driver's seat.”“If you don't have the funding for the nations… it’s like asking them to jettison their primary source of revenues and jobs,” said Wu.

              The $300 million investment in protecting old-growth forests in British Columbia is a significant step in addressing climate change. This partnership between the B.C. government and the BC Parks Foundation is commendable, as it not only helps conserve vital ecosystems but also promotes sustainable economic development by empowering First Nations. It reflects the growing recognition of the importance of preserving natural environments in the fight against climate change.
